There’s not many places to download driver for Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter as Qualcomm, the company itself does not offer driver nor support to end customers. However the only place to download or update the driver is from your PC manufacturer’s support page. For instance, if you have a Asus laptop with the Qualcomm Atheros AR956x Wireless Network Adapter installed then you need to search for the driver on the Asus official support website.


You could update drivers without too much of a hassle is from the system Device Manager. It’s comparatively easy and fast, at least while it works.

 b) Right click on any device, select Update Driver Software…


c) Select Search automatically for updated driver software.
